Vulnerability and Critical Theory more.


In this book, I identify contemporary developments on the theme of vulnerability within critical theory while also seeking to reconstruct an idea of estellee that enables an articulation of the political and estflle how it is In this book, I identify contemporary developments on the theme of vulnerability within critical theory while also seeking to reconstruct an idea of vulnerability that enables estel,e articulation of the political and demonstrates how it is socially produced.

Philosophies that take vulnerability as a moral object contribute to rendering the political, as the site of a specific power and action, foreign to vulnerability. The notion of recognition offered by critical theory does not correct this deficit. Instead, I argue that vulnerability, as susceptibility to a harmful event, is above all a breach of normative expectations.

I demonstrate that these expectations are not mental phenomena but are situated between subjects and must even be conceived as institutions. On this basis I argue that the link between the political and vulnerability cannot be reduced to the institutional implementation of moral principles. Rather I seek to rethink the political by taking vulnerability as the starting point and thereby understand the political as simultaneously referring to the advent of a world, the emergence of a relation, and the appearance of a political subject.

Adorno et le care. Tel est le dessein de ce livre. Formes de vie more. The Politics of Vulnerability more. Vulnerability is a concept with fleeting contours as much it is an idea with assured academic success. In the United States, torturable, “mutilatable,” and killable bodies are a wide topic of discussion, especially after September The political scope of vulnerability is often denied: Ethique et fwrrarese de l’espace public.

It shows how they aim less at preserving some atomistic self than at establishing mutual relations. It also underscores that the struggle is not the instrument of a purpose external to it i. The book identifies the mechanisms through which conflict is actualised, its power to shape experience, its constraints and its conditions of possibility — from the existence of a common ground, to the admission by both parties that they are in conflict.


The book also attempts to identify why struggle frequently emerges as a necessary condition of true recognition, and what this teaches us about recognition: The book establishes both a theory of conflict and a diagnosis of what constrains and shapes it in contemporary democracies.

It observes a particularly widespread grammar of protest, that of recognition, while simultaneously highlighting the way it is caught between ideology and reification on the one hand, and inaudibility on the other.

In this way, it provides a reflection on the conditions of a truly emancipatory antagonism. From this perspective, it explores the forms that struggles for recognition take they are actualised through violence, argumentation, their staging in the public spheretheir potential recourse to material, symbolic or passive force.

The study shows what forms do to content. Also, towards this end, it analyses the place and meaning of institutions in acts of recognition, as a privileged addressee of expectations and demands, but also in the context of social relations of mutual recognition.

This book is the first French estellle to the sociology of Niklas Luhmann, whose work remains largely untranslated. It firstly endeavours to show the various sources and influences of this very iconoclastic writer. They all meld into a theoretical project that can be summed up as an attempt to strip the world as it is of its obviousness.

Luhmann endeavours to reveal the place of contingency and disorder in social mechanisms. In other words, the social system does not bind human beings together, it does not constrain them, it does not subsume them, it is not the sum of them — rather, it expels them. It is also differentiated into functional subsystems, self-contained via specialised codes: Lacking any centre, this always-already global modern society constantly observes itself, in the vain attempt to try to derive a knowledge of itself, but it is incapable a characteristic which also applies to its political subsystem of giving itself any kind of direction.

As for human beings — who are placed at the periphery of the system and are as unfathomable to themselves individually as to one another — both their attribute of rationality and their status of subject are reduced to mere fictions. Re faire de la Theorie Critique.

This paper aims to refute the idea whereby giving consideration to vulnerability can only lead to an ethics, or is only relative to a politics derived from morality. I first shed some light on the seeming impossibility experienced esstelle a I first shed some light on the seeming impossibility experienced by a large number of contemporary theories of vulnerability to fully think the political.

Second, I define what one overlooks in the esfelle when one simply considers it as a sphere of implementation of moral principles. Finally, I interpret care theories as an attempt to overcome the difficulty of thinking the political from the viewpoint of vulnerability, and I define the political as a movement of reengaging with and transforming what is already instituted.

Precarity of Work, Precarity of Moral Dispositions: Adorno invited us to conceive of the ever-present threat of a socio-political neutralization of the conditions for morality. I argue that the current widespread thesis of an emotional phase of capitalism is false, for two reasons. The use of bodies. Agamben’s idea of a non- capitalist form of life more. With the notion of the form-of-life as a counter-figure to the notion of bare life, Agamben seems to invite us to place at the center of a critical theory of capitalism a reflection on bios.


To envisage a form of emancipation that unfolds To envisage a form of emancipation that unfolds against bare life suggests, at first glance, another relation to the living body. Such a gesture seems to be inspired by the desire to think a natural life that would also be a politically qualified life. The idea with which Agamben closes the Homo Sacer series, namely that of a use of bodies, also gestures in this direction.

In this paper I esteelle how the categories of bare life and of the use estellle bodies fail to live up to their promise, before demonstrating in what sense the idea of a subtraction of law as a political project which subsumes all others ends up weakening the critical potential of the idea of a form-of-life that is to be realised against the force of production of bare lives.
